Class of 1969 to be Honored in May

Our office is busily preparing for graduation events in May, as we welcome all our new alumni to the family. We also take the time to honor our 50-year graduates each year with a weekend full of fun, reunions, good food, and fellowship, along with lots and lots of love and gifts!

If you or a loved one graduated from ATS in 1969, and you have not received a Christmas card with a “Save the Date” invitation enclosed, please contact our Alumni Office as soon as possible, as we need to update your contact information to get an invitation out to you. You can email us at or call us at 859-858-2085. Formal invitations and RSVP cards will be sent out soon along with your registration paperwork. Please fill out all registration paperwork as completely as possible.

The Golden Graduate Honor Weekend will be held on Friday, May 17th and Saturday, May 18th. All your meals and your lodging are already covered by the Office of Alumni as a gift to you. All you have to do is get yourself here. If you need to plan travel, you are welcome to give us a call. The weekend’s activities will begin late Friday morning (around 10:30am) and conclude Saturday afternoon. We recommend that you set any flight departures for after 4pm so you don’t have any trouble getting to the airport and through security in time.

Our schedule of events will include an honor luncheon with President Tennent, pictures, a tour-bus tour of campus to see what is changed, a fellowship dinner, a peek at yearbooks, and lots of commemorative gifts. Our weekend will culminate

We are so excited to spend time with you and make you feel special. You will be such an encouragement to our graduating class: a testament to the faithfulness of God to keep us through many trials. You are our living legacy – a very important part of the life of our Asbury family, and we hope that you will stand as a testament of God’s goodness with this year’s graduates. And, if you need any kind of special accommodation in order to participate as much as possible, we are happy to help you. Just give us a call or let us know on your registration paperwork.

We are already covering this May’s events in prayer and have prayed specifically for each name on our class of 1969 list. We hope that you will be blessed and truly feel how proud we are of your dedication and life’s work.

    This is Dr. Robert W. Wolcott, a 1969 graduate of ATS. My wife, Sylvia Harden Wolcott, and I both attended ATS and met there. Please put us on the list of attendees. We are still (at 75 yrs. old) still serving the Lord as Pastors of the Union Church of Monterrey, Mexico. It is best to contact me through my email as “snail” mail in Mexico is totally unreliable.

  2. My wife and I look forward to being with you!

    This is Ann Kennison Van Valin, MRE, 1968. I was enriched by the Golden Graduate Honor weekend last year at ATS. It was encouraging spiritually to realize how God had used our obedience to help people come to Christ for the past 50 years. It was so much more than you can realize by seeing an invitation in print. It is an event you do not want to miss. God has inspired the Alumni office personnel to think of every possible way to honor the golden graduates. My husband, John, is a 50 year graduate this year. We can hardly wait to see the Golden Grads who come this May. It is an unforgettable experience. John and I hope to see you there!

      I know I sure am glad to get a double-dose of Van Valins! We are so excited for you both to be back with us this year for John’s 50th. I couldn’t have said it better myself: the more the merrier!

  4. Marilyn and I a eagerly looking forward to the 50th Reunion of the Class of 1969 — And can it be! Roger Green returned from last year’s reunion with enthusiastic reports on the reunion weekend. We return to ATS ever thankful for the academic and spiritual foundation received. We would not want to give up the three years in Wilmore for anything.

      We are so eager to have you with us for your honor weekend! We certainly enjoyed Roger’s stay while he was here!
